About this book


Bryan Smith draws together in Protein Sequencing Protocols a timely collection of current and state-of-the-art techniques for protein and peptide preparation and sequencing-all described by hands-on masters of the procedures. These well-tested methods convey valuable lessons and insights into using automated sequencers and/or mass spectrometers, preparing proteins and peptides on a microgram and submicrogram scale, mapping peptides, analyzing amino acid by pre- and post-column derivatization methods, and sequencing N- and C-terminal peptides by classical and newly developed techniques. They also deal with such troublesome problems as identifying sites of modification and handling very small samples.

Protein Sequencing Protocols offers self-contained, step-by-step recipes that ensure easily reproducible results for those already doing sequencing, and for those who are still learning the methods, as well as for those already in one area but wishing to learn associated techniques. Its multiplicity of proven protocols will guide the challenged experimenter to successful results.
